DVD Review: Once Upon a Time Season 2
I guess it would have helped to have watched Season One of Once Upon A Time before embarking on a review of Season Two, but I’ve seen enough TV shows to realise you can generally pick up on whats happening quite quickly. Well, unless that TV show is Once Upon A Time.
I never bothered with Season One because, well to be honest, some faux fairy tail story based in modern times or some such, really didn’t appeal to me. But my wife had been harping on about it for some time, so I decided to jump right in with Season Two.
To be honest, Once Upon A Time is kinda like Lost meets Childhood Fairy Tails, but Season Two seems to be set in the later seasons of Lost, you know, the ones that make no sense.
Something bad happened at the end of Season One that banished some people in one reality and others in another, and theres a whole different storyline as well. I think. All the fairy tail characters you know and love (or hate) are pretty much represented, and the actors acting them tend to play different roles in each of the different universes.
This along with a timeline that includes flash backs, means that the storyline can jump between up to eight different realities – something my male brain can’t quite comprehend.
However, it does have all the necessary ingredients, intrigue, drama, love, magic, double crossing, evil characters and a knight in shining armour. So in essence, whilst this isn’t panning out to be a review in the traditional sense, I can say that Once Upon A Time seems resoundingly suited to he female demographic, and with that in mind, I’ll give it a rating based on my wife’s enjoyment of the show, rather than my own.
Rating: M Fantasy violence.
